  • Patent number: 10122582
    Abstract: A request for a communication session is received by a system. For example, a request to establish a voice communication session is received by the system. The system determines whether the request for the communication session is to be forked to a plurality of communication endpoints. If the communication session is to be forked, a highest bandwidth requirement for the forked communication session is determined. The determined highest bandwidth requirement for the forked communication session is based on a highest bandwidth requirement of one or more codecs that are defined in the received request for the communication session. The determined highest bandwidth requirement for the forked communication session is allocated so that the forked communication session can be established.

  • Patent number: 10083055
    Abstract: Specialized, service optimized virtual machines are assigned to handle specific types of Internet of Things (IoT) devices. An IoT context mapping policy engine within the context of a virtualized network function manages IoT context mapping policy functions in load balancers. The IoT context mapping policy functions select service optimized virtual machines based on IoT device IDs, and assign those virtual machines to handle the devices. The IoT context mapping policy functions provide load data to the IoT context mapping policy engine. Based on the load data, the IoT context mapping policy engine maintains appropriate scaling by creating or tearing down instances of the virtual machines.

  • Patent number: 10069646
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide a method for a controller for mapping and sharing up to date configuration information for a logical network comprising managed forwarding elements having multiple tunnel endpoints. The method identifies a data compute node for operation on a host machine that includes a managed forwarding element (MFE) having multiple tunnel endpoints. The data compute node belongs to a particular logical network. The method identifies multiple other data compute nodes belonging to the particular logical network. The method distributes to the MFE (i) a mapping of each data compute node of the other data compute nodes to an identifier for a group of tunnel endpoints associated with the data compute node and (ii) a mapping of each of the identifiers to a list of tunnel endpoints. The MFE uses the mappings to encapsulate packets sent from the data compute node for transmission to other MFEs.
